Day One at the Show.

Last Wednesday I drove down to the big smoke to spend a few days with family and go to the Craft Show...

Thursday DD, a friend and I  hopped on a train, which was full of like minded folk all going to the show.

I am always in awe of all the talented ladies who make these amazing quilts...








             Just took photos of a few......





             
            
this one has tiny 1/4" hexies which were fussy cut.... 


some Aussie Themed ones I liked


Fun ones 


we had a great time catching up with friends enjoying a lovely lunch chatting and checking out all the stalls . These were my only purchases.

The little blue things go around a bobbin ,


wonder how long I'll use them for ????

Must away as the washing machine is calling...

Happy Stitching 

Hugs Maria 😄

  3. Thanks for the photos of the quilts. It is always nice to see what's happening in other corners of the quilt world. I really like the second one with the groovy 50s vibe. I haven't seen anything quite like it before.

  16. Love the monsters quilt. I bought some of those blue things - good idea - but I couldn't then see what colour thread was on each bobbin...

  17. Looks like a great show - the quilts you have shown are gorgeous! I have 3 or 4 of those little bobbin things and still use them lots - especially for the fine thread that I don't use so often - I'm sure you'll find them useful!
